I have hooked large sharks at CMP on live croakers in the summer. Couldn't land them though, with 30lb line. To tough from the jetty.

The depth varies greatly and suddenly around the point. The fleet has been drifting through the end of the rips. The depth will go from 10 to 30 feet. There have been lots of flounder caught there this year, but many are shorts.

I've caught some monster flounder when drifting eels for stripers through the rips. Big enough to swallow an eel, but unfortunately they were always out of season.
